Total Time ::: 3:09

::: Quite fine AUD. Check sample but by the time you do, you coulda downloaded the one song...
::: Warts: No real problems except brevity.
::: Marc Ellington (and band) were opening for Fairport Convention. Very possible other acts played as well.
::: While we could wish for more of this set, I simply wish for more early Marc Ellington. Certainly tapes must exist, among them at least a couple of BBC sessions from the early 70s. Can anyone help?
